An isotope of element 105 with mass number 260 has been formed by bombarding 249Cf with 15N ions. The Z and A of the nuclide have been unambiguously identified by recoilmilking the 30-second 256Lr daughter. 260105 has a (1.6+/-0.3)-sec half-life and decays by alpha-particle emission with groups at 9.06 (55%), 9.10 (25%), and 9.14 MeV (20%). Branching decay by spontaneous fission is less than 20%. Some comments are made on the earlier results of the Dubna group concerning a few alpha-particle events at 9.4 and 9.7 MeV which they claim to be due to element 105.
